Colon Hydrotherapy


RICTAT Registration Number: 2011-78

Having suffered for years with digestive related problems, namely; constipation, IBS, Systemic Candida Albicans, and food intolerance, and having discovered ways to alleviate my symptoms, I decided to put my knowledge into practice in order to help others experiencing similar issues.

My fascination with the digestive system led me to change my career path. I began training to become a Naturopathic Nutritionist in October 2010, with the aim of specialising in digestive and bowel related conditions.

After being made redundant in May 2011, I decided to embark on my chosen career earlier than anticipated. I spent weeks researching the best colleges to train with to become a colon therapist, speaking to each governing association and ex students before deciding to train with the renowned Chi Centre for Practical Detoxification, governed by RICTAT, the international (Register of Integrative Colonic Therapists and Trainers) and approved by G-PACT, (Global Professional Association for Colon Therapists); I-ACT, (International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy) and CMA, (Complementary Medical Association). I chose the college due to its ethos, they believe that colon hydrotherapy is more that just a procedure and advocate a personalised and unique approach to each individual. They support the view that colon therapy is part of modern integrated medicine and are prepared to cooperate with doctors, other medical professionals and alternative medicine practitioners in order to help each individual achieve optimum health and longevity. Their motto, as an organization, is SALUS AEGROTI SUPREMA LEX. This is one of the crucial concepts of medical ethics, which means, in Latin, "patient's health rules supreme", i.e. that the practitioner should always act in the best interest of the patient.

At INNER HEALTH you will experience colonic hydrotherapy as it should be, specific, gentle, discreet, relaxing and extremely effective. I work with your body’s natural rhythm ensuring your nervous system remains calm therefore enabling you to have a relaxing as well as a cleansing experience.

I work in the same rhythm pattern as your nervous system and your colon. I use short & long fills as well as temperature adjustment all the while ensuring the nervous system and colon remain calm throughout. This results in the treatment being much more effective allowing the colon to expel gas, toxins and waste in a calm manner.

In contrast to popular belief, the effectiveness of colon hydrotherapy is not dependent on the quantity of water infused into the colon. Less really is more. Colon hydrotherapy should be a gentle infusion of warm temperature regulated purified water into the colon. Using no chemicals or drugs, the warm water helps to soften, break up, and then remove impacted and dehydrated faecal, mucoidal, parasitic and other waste material that layer the colon walls.
I use the state of the art , Aqua-Clinic™ device which is based on the traditional closed system, but with a built-in double filtration system. It has adjustable temperature and flow controls which hold temperature and flow extremely well. It has a very quiet and gentle operation which is suitable for fragile clients. No electricity is used in the operation, making the equipment suitable for EMF-sensitive clients; and unlike in most other pressure devices, waste DOES NOT go through the machine thus ensuring hygiene and safety 100%. The system can be used both in free flow mode and in gradual or full water restriction mode, enabling a personalised treatment programme which depends entirely on the clients needs, but best of all the deep hydration effect enables effective results from the very first treatment.

The treatment I provide will ensure your comfort and safety above all else. I only use disposable equipment so you are assured of a safe, sterile and hygienic treatment.
